Wine & Viticulture Journal

May/June »»» subscribe

The focus of the May-June issue of the Wine & Viticulture Journal is 'Vineyard Innovations & Technology' for which we highlight two separate research projects being undertaken in South Australia. The first is being undertaken by the University of South Australia and is investigating whether unmanned aerial vehicles (aka drones) could be used to provide snapshots of micro-climate in or above vineyards. The second project is developing canopy and fruit based tools that growers could use to measure smoke contamination in their vineyards - currently, there are no practical tools that can determine which vines or vineyard sections have been affected by smoke contamination after a bushfire.

Another highlight of this issue is the results of our tasting of skin contact white wines, otherwise known as 'orange' or 'amber' wines. To complement the results, our practical wine writer Cathy Howard spoke to some of Australia's emerging producers of this style to learn about the reasons for travelling down this path of wine production and the lessons they are learning along the way.

Canopy management is a featured topic in this issue and we look beyond Australian shores to reveal the results of a New Zealand study into the influence of trimming Pinot Noir on fruit development and wine sensory properties and a two-year study into the relationship between fruit zone exposure, water deficits and berry flavonoid composition in grapevines growing in California.

Over in Business & Marketing we get an insight into how consumers who purchase higher-priced wines respond to price changes - the first study to investigate the direction and magnitude of price elasticity for high-priced wine brands.
